Fans think 'incredible' Adam Sandler movie is 'one of his best performances' after dropping on Netflix today

Fans think 'incredible' Adam Sandler movie is 'one of his best performances' after dropping on Netflix today

The comedian has wowed fans with his performance in his latest film

We all know Adam Sandler is effortlessly amusing, but his acting isn't half bad either.

He's a lot more than just a jester, although his humour has come in very handy over the years for his countless starring roles in comedy films.

But the Happy Gilmore star can still impress audiences when he's tasked with taking on more profound characters too.

Viewers have been heaping praise on Sandler for his out of this world performance in his latest flick which has just landed on Netflix today (1 March).

Take a look at this:

The 57-year-old earned even more respect from movie buffs after it emerged that he spent the majority of his time suspended in mid-air by an array of wires while taking on the main character.

He admitted this was quite a difficult feat for him despite the fact he is quite flexible due to Pilates, because he has a 'clumsy body' which struggled to 'get used to' it even after a couple of weeks of training in preparation.

You'd be forgiven for thinking Sandler stars as some kind of high-wire circus act, but he was actually trying to pull off the illusion that he was floating in a spaceship.

He takes on the role of Czech astronaut Jakub Procházka in the recently debuted Spaceman, who embarks on a deeply solitary research mission in outer space - although he isn't as alone as he first thinks.

The cosmonaut is sent off on a lengthy voyage to the edge of the solar system to look into a mysterious ancient dust cloud near Jupiter, while he begins to realise that his life back on Earth is falling apart.

Adam Sandler has impressed fans with his work on his new film Spaceman.

Fearing his wife Lenka (Carey Mulligan) might not be waiting for him when he returns, Prochazka is forced to take solace in an unlikely source - a strange creature from the beginning of time that is hiding in the bowels of his spaceship.

Known as Hanuš (Paul Dano), this unlikely companion who apparently doles out A star advice tries to help the astronaut make sense of what went wrong before it is too late.

Spaceman, which is based off of Jaroslav Kalfar's 2017 sci-fi novel Spaceman of Bohemia, debuted at the 74th Berlin International Film Festival on 21 February before being released into cinemas the following day for a limited run.

But it has now landed on Netflix for all of us to enjoy from the comfort of our own homes - and people who have already watched it reckon Sandler put on 'one of his best performances' in the new film.

The 107 minute-long movie, directed by Johan Renck, already has viewers dubbing it 'well acted, consistently engaging and memorable'.

He was suspended in mid-air by an array of wires to pull off the illusion he was floating.

Social media users have now started sharing their reviews online following Spaceman's release on Netflix and it seems they share the same opinion of Sandler's performance.

One said: "Spaceman with Adam Sandler on Netflix was really good!!!"

Another wrote: "What feels like a silly premise turns into an unbelievably sad and touching movie that I highly recommend to anyone wanting to watch this weekend. One of Sandler's best movies in a while."

A third added: "I finished watching Spaceman on Netflix this morning. I thought it was a great, beautiful and emotional sci-fi drama film. Adam Sandler was good in this movie."

A fourth joked: "Every few years Adam Sandler pops up to remind us all he can actually act! #Spaceman."

And a fifth chimed in: "Just got done watching Spaceman and it was such an brilliant film. Adam Sandler deserves an Oscar for that epic performance."

If you want to check it out for yourself, Spaceman is available to stream on Netflix now.
